In between, there are the surfboards that can mount a foil, and be useful without it as well when there's no wind at all, or too much wind for foiling. To me this sounds best.
I have the fantasy of a foil I could slap on my surfboard, ride upwind a few miles to a good wave, remove the foil, stow it somehow and ride waves conventionally back downwind. Masts are too long though...
